Lohan Vs Iraq
hecklerspray reports: It's never pretty when celebrities show an interest in politics, is it? The gap between acting in a film about a magic car and quelling global conflicts is insurmountably huge - well, unless you're Lindsay Lohan. 

Because Lindsay Lohan isn't the staggeringly self-regarding party girl that you think she is. In reality, Lindsay Lohan is a woman who feels the pain of the world and reacts to it with the calm vision of a global statesman. Or, in other words, Lindsay Lohan told Elle magazine that she feels like going and singing some songs at the soldiers in Iraq. And if she gets to shoot a couple of Iraqis while she's at it, more the better.[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Metal Meat Toss Protest
Blabbermouth reports: The organizers of the Swedish hard rock/heavy metal festival Gates of Metal may face prosecution over the stage show put on by the Norwegian black metal band Mayhem last Saturday (August 5). Pig heads and other animal parts decorated the stage during the band's performance - a violation of the Swedish animal by-product regulation.

"It's illegal to handle animal parts in this manner," Hanna Werthén, administrative officer at the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Fisheries, told the Swedish newspaper Östran/Nyheterna. "You may use animal by-products for educational purposes or in an artistic context, but in that case you need a permit from us first. We have not received an application from the festival promoters in Hultsfred. Therefore we will take action. Exactly what will happen I can't say at the moment, but it may very well lead to prosecution." [see full story for more] - Click Here for the Full Story

Legal Panic at the Disco?
punkbands reports: Brent Wilson, former bass player of the band Panic! at the Disco, reportedly has plans to file a lawsuit against his former bandmates. The bassist's brother posted this bulletin: 

A court case is in the making. Brent and his lawyer have taken the next step. A letter has been sent to Panic! stating that Brent will be taking them to court if he has not received an agreement from the band within 14 days. If this 14 day grace period is neglected, further measures will be taken. If Panic! does not agree to Brent's proposal, the case may take anywhere from two to four years. If, in the event the band does not come to a settlement, the IRS will have to get involved and things will get even uglier. In the mean time, the family thanks all of you for your support.- Click Here for the Full Story
